Periodically, ad-hoc Task Forces are formed as part of the GNC to address emerging technical issues and to facilitate liaison with existing technical groups outside of the GNC. These are time-bound group with clearly defined outputs. Recently, there has only been one active Task Force, the MAM Task Force.
MAM Task Force
The Task Force on Moderate Acute Malnutrition was established in March 2011 in response to the need for programmatic guidance on the prevention and treatment of moderate acute malnutrition. The Task Force was set up to develop a Decision Tool which could be used in emergencies to assist the Nutrition Cluster to determine the most appropriate type of intervention for MAM in the particular context.

Information Management Task Forse
During a GNC face-to-face meeting in January 2013, it was decided to create an Information Management (IM) Task Force. The first step is to agree on TOR and criteria for the TF. It is planned that the TF will consist of GNC partners with expertise in IM as well as country representatives, operational partners, information managers and experts in the area. All interested eligible parties are welcome to express their interest as soon as possible (email@example.com).
